Indoor location for this year, but still a strong lineup ahead for National Indigenous Day in Prince Rupert on Wednesday

Organizers could not secure an outdoor venue for this years National Indigenous Day, so the events for the 25th celebration of the day will be moving indoors to the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre Arena. 

This years lineup provides for a strong mix of local and national talent, with Kuuk iiwaans, (Kiefer Collison) of CFNR and Big Brother Canada fame handling the Master of Ceremonies duties for the event which takes place from Noon to 8PM.

To go along with the entertainment portion of the eight hours, the Civic Centre area will be host for Traditional Foods and Family activities along with Draws for Prizes for those in attendance.

Organizers noted in a recent update that with a high level of construction taking place on the waterfront area near Kwinitsa Museum, which has been used in the past, that they would not approve the annual event there for this year.
